and Susan Ingham. She travelled with ANARE for 14 days, her scientific purpose
on the island was to analyse the effects of sea birds on the island's vegetation.
Mary spent five days on Macquarie but still explored as much of the island
as she could. She kept a diary of her time there and made notes on the exceptional
wildlife inhabiting the island. The complete timeline of Mary's Macquarie
trip and more of Mary's accomplishments during her life can be found at http://www.marygillhamarchiveproject.com/
